Rocketfish Bluetooth Stereo Headset

author Posted by: George on date Oct 24th, 2010 | filed Filed under: Music

A couple of months ago I got so sick of wires from my headphones that i started the quest for some reasonable priced bluetooth headphones.

It is difficult to find anything in stores and if they have something then there is no real choice because they maybe just have the one kind.

But after a long search i ran into these headphones from Rocketfish the price was just under $70 dollars and although that is more then i would have liked to spend it seemed to be one of the cheaper once.

The headphones come with a usb cable and charging plug and that is all you need.

Just charge them and wait till the light turns blue and you are good to go. I use this headset daily for walking or running and the battery life is great i normally need to charge them every 2.5 to 3 weeks and to me that is fine. One thing i don’t like is that it doesn’t really warn you when they are gone run dry. OK they do but only like 5 minutes before and when i am in the middle of a run that doesn’t help me much.

The ear pieces slide nicely over my ears and stay in place nicely even when running they don’t move. I can even wear my sunglasses with them although i can imagine that this would look pretty funny 🙂

The Rocketfish RF-MAB2 also has a build in microphone so you can use it to do handfree calling and ok i tried  it and it works but i never really used it so that is all i am gone say about that.

I use this headset with my iPhone 3G and pairing is real easy and if you do it once you never really have to do it again. Apple doesn’t support all the buttons on the Rocketfish headset but the once for vollume and to pause work fine but no next and previous tracks sorry, it would have bin nice but Apple does not support that so it won’t work on any bluetooth headset.

So these headphones work great and offer great sound on a rare occasion maybe once a week the sounds start stuttering a bit and although it would be great if that didn’t happen it does so i live with it. The solution is pretty simple turn my bluetooth on my iphone of and on and i am good to go.

My final verdict about the Rocketfish RF-MAB2 Bluetooth Headphones is that i would not want to live without them any more. It is so much better to listen to my music without having to deal with wires getting stuck. The sound quality and battery life are great so this works fine for me.

If you are thinking about some Bluetooth headphones i would say have a look at the Rocketfish RF-MAB2 Bluetooth headphones.

Do i want a new Apple TV

author Posted by: George on date Oct 23rd, 2010 | filed Filed under: apple

So Apple now offers the new Apple TV and that is great i really like it but would i buy one?

First of i have the old Apple TV and i have it less then 1 year it is the one with the 160gb hard drive in it.

I don’t really buy tv shows or movies on itunes. I normally go to the library and get what i want to see. And yes i know i am lucky that our library offers all those movies. Then when i get the movie i rip it and send it to my Apple TV and then i watch it when ever i want to. For me this is great because now the computer doesn’t have to be on to stream it (like on the new Apple TV) . But that is about all i use my Apple TV for.

What i really like about the new Apple TV is that soon you can stream content from you iPhone or iPad i think that is real neat because then you can take you content where ever you want and watch it on an Apple TV where ever you find one. But of course i don’t think Apple will update my software so that i can do that to.

Then there is Netflix witch would be nice to have on my Apple TV although i could just use my Wii to watch Netflix on my tv.

So as you probably get from this strange posts that is all over the place, is that I would love to own a new Apple TV but can’t convince myself i need one. And that is something that doesn’t happen often with new Apple products.

So what do you think? Are you gone get an new Apple TV?

Contour Rollermouse

If you need a good mouse that doesn’t take up to much space or if you need something that is ergonomically better for you then you have to look at this Rollermouse.

It is not a simple mouse like you are use to. This mouse works with a bigger roller that you can control with one finger and of course it offers the scroll wheel and 5 programmable buttons and it even has an arm rest. The mouse slides under the front of your keyboard just like those arm rest things you see.

I would say need a new mouse go check out the Contour RollerMouse PRO2.
